Eli Manning and Andy Dalton aren’t considered by the majority as a certified elite quarterback, but they can definitely put on a show when they’re on. Also, unlike the QBs ranked above them, they have the luxury of having two of the very best receivers in the game today – Odell Beckham Jr. and AJ Green.
Don’t even think about missing this game. We’re predicting exciting things for this match up.

The Bengals are back from a bye and a 27-27 tie with the Redskins one week before that. Although the team is right in the middle on various defensive stats, the defense will look to perform better Monday night. They gave up a whopping 543 total yards in their last outing, and will once again another aggressive passing game.
Offensively, Cincy’s man under center, Andy Dalton, has his numbers where it should be. He’s rated inside the top 10 in completion percentage (67 percent), passing yards (2,349), passing yards per game (293.6), yards per completion (12.2), and passer rating (98). The QB is also connecting well with his talented wideout, AJ Green, helping the receiver lead the NFL in receptions (59) and rank second in receiving yards (896).
With Green and the backfield tandem of Jeremy Hill and pass-catching back Gio Bernard, the Bengals should have enough weapons to operate effectively around the Giants defense.
The Giants, though, clearly have the better momentum coming in. They are winners of three straight and will have the comfort of playing in front of their home crowd.
Look for the G-Men to go toe to toe on offense by attacking through the air. Their team is mostly about throwing the ball. The talented set of receivers, dead-last running game (546 yards), and head coach Ben McAdoo’s West Coast offense simply calls for it. The Giants (11th) and the Bengals (12th) are right beside each other in the NFL’s rankings of total passing yards.
In the current streak, Manning has thrown seven touchdowns and is averaging 285.3 yards per game. His primary receiver, Odell Beckham, is doing well also, recording 17 receptions for 317 yards (18.6 yards per catch) and four touchdowns.
As for the defense, particularly on opposing QBs, the Giants’ numbers are a little hot and cold. They only allow a fifth-best 59.3-percent completion percentage, but they give up the 12th-most passing yards, with 2,219. And although the secondary has done well in two straight contests (six interceptions), the front seven hasn’t followed, as the Giants are still in last place with 11 sacks.
